How to Make a Feature of your Hallway

The first room you see when you enter your home, hallways can often be overlooked as not much time is spent in them. However, ensuring that this room looks its best will mean that you’re always greeted by a space that you love when you walk through the door. Here, we share our tips on how to make a feature of your hallway which we hope will inspire you.

Add a Console Table

Console tables are the perfect addition to any hallway as they are slimline and compact but offer some storage space too. Able to sit discreetly against your hallway wall, a console table can be dressed to suit your tastes with decorative pieces, photo frames, or candles, and many have drawer and shelving options so you can neatly store small items out of sight.
